i knew they were making AR-15's but i didn't know about the .308 R-25

anyone know how these compare to a Armalite AR-10? or any other?

i did a search for it and didn't see anything about it

It's a DPMS gun. One company is the parent corp of Remington, Bushmaster (and Cobb Mfg) and DPMS.  Probably why Bushy sold the BAR-10 (other than trademark infringement and it didn't work for shit) to RRA (then RRA tried to call it the LAR-10..duh).  I'm surprised Remington isn't catching heat from KAC for using the -25 designation on a .308 gun. That may not be that big of a deal, but the others clearly used the AR-10 name with the addition of a simple prefix.

The BAR-10 was actually designed by RRA & sold to Bushy. People always seem to get that wrong.

Anyway, the Remington is simply a DPMS rifle with some camo applied. Search for DPMS & you will find plenty of info. I haven't seen one around here, but wondered if they were priced higher than the DPMS line.

Take care,

I have used the DPMS labeled version.  It is great.  With the short barrels, I got .75 moa groups.  With the bull barrel versions, I got .5 moa groups.  All have been very reliable.  

Let's please not get into the AR-10 or FAL mag thing again in this guy's thread.
